Yeah, it's easy for me to say people should keep cash on hand for emergencies.
Why wouldn't it be easy for me to say that?
It's not like I am forcing them to.
I have just given a perfect real life example as to why it might be wise for them to do so.
My sister still uses checks a lot. I guess many people still do. I don't. I probably wrote
no more than 5 or 10 checks, this entire year. Maybe less than that.
I guess if any company is losing business in the USA, it is the paper check business.
These days, people are better off digging a hole in the ground, placing their money in a
steal box, and burying it.
